I have been asked to assist a physician at my institution with some
data collection. We are planning on using a Memsense Bluetooth IMU
sensor (http://www.memsense.com/images/downloads/81/Datasheet-(Rev.-D---Eff.-Jan.-1,-2009).pdf)
to collect biomechanical forces on the body during exercise.

We are just wondering if:
1. Anyone else has used this device for Biomechanical Data collection.
2. Anyone has used a similar device for Biomechanical Data collection.
3. Any clinical studies have been done with this device in humans
4. Any other relevant experiences pertaining to the accuracy of the device

We have found some studies looking at downhill skiing and running, but
we were hoping we could use it to collect accelerations and rotations
during exercise, rather then things such as stride length and
location. Any input is appreciated and a summary of replies will be
